Joss Whedon knows what to give his fans for the holidays: a brand new clip from next year's Dollhouse, complete with the creepiness essential to make it through the sentiment of the season.

The clip, which first appeared on Michael Ausiello's Entertainment Weekly blog yesterday, shows Eliza Dushku's Echo waking up from a mindwipe, and her handlers - Topher (Fran Kranz) and Boyd (Harry Lennix) - discussing the (lack of) morality behind what they're up to. As much as I'm convinced that the series is in trouble, these two minutes are enough to make me hope that I'm wrong.
